Subject searching is an effective and precise method of searching the catalog, however, KEYWORD searching has benefits, also.

  • Try a KEYWORD search if you are unsure of the exact title or the correct subject heading to use. Search using two or three of the most significant words from the title or subject you are trying to find. Place phrases in "quotation marks."

  • Connect words with AND, OR, NOT to focus your search.
  • Try truncation at the end of a word stem to retrieve singular, plural, and other variations of the word.  Use an asterisk (*) to truncate from 1 to 5 characters. Use a double asterisk (**) to include word endings with an unlimited number of characters.
KEYWORD Searching Tips
 
KEYWORD Search Examples


Add * to the root of a word

to truncate or expand a term

  moonshine*=moonshine, moonshiner, moonshiners

Use a double asterisk**

to retrieve an unlimited number of letters

 

south** = south, southern, southerners, etc.

          religio**= religion, religions, religiosity,

                              religious, religiousness

  

=============================

 
Use AND between words

to narrow your search:
slave* AND narrative*

Use OR between words

to expand your search and
group OR words with parentheses:
(freedom OR emancipation) AND south


•Use quotation marks around a phrase
to search for the exact phrase

"Carter Family"

"kentucky bourbon"

 


muscadine* OR scuppernong*

Southern Exposure 

"The South is still unique, and we still share problems and strengths with the rest of the nation. We still believe that both the uniqueness and commonality need to be explored in ways that are honest and honest, ways that encourage creative means of strengthening the positive, sustaining traditions of the South: love of the land, self-reliance, community sharing, humor, and striving for social harmony in the face of prejudices based on sexual, racial, and economic differences.

As a magazine published by a grassroots group struggling for social change, Southern Exposure recognizes that journalism and activism are inseparable. We write about our region because we wish to understand it and, ultimately, to change it for the better. As journalists and activists, we seek to provide the diverse cultural groups in the South with the information, ideas, and historical understanding we all need to bring about lasting change.

We wish to dispel stereotypical images of the South and its people by documenting and participating in movements for social change that help all of us as Southerners gain greater control over our lives."

University of North Carolina -Chapel Hill

Documenting the American South (DocSouth) is a digital publishing initiative that provides Internet access to texts, images, and audio files related to southern history, literature, and culture. Currently DocSouth includes ten thematic collections of books, diaries, posters, artifacts, letters, oral history interviews, and songs.

The University Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill sponsors Documenting the American South, and the texts and materials come primarily from its southern holdings.


First Person Narratives of the American South
[Documenting the American South, UNC-Chapel Hill; American Memry Project, Library of Congress]

First-Person Narratives of the American South" is a collection of diaries, autobiographies, memoirs, travel accounts, and ex-slave narratives written by Southerners. The majority of materials in this collection are written by those Southerners whose voices were less prominent in their time, including African Americans, women, enlisted men, laborers, and Native Americans

Southerners recorded their stories of these tumultuous times in print and in diaries and letters, but few first-person narratives, other than those written by the social and economic elite found their way into the national print culture. In this online collection, accounts of life on the farm or in the servants' quarters or in the cotton mill have priority over accounts of public lives and leading military battles. Each narrative offers a unique perspective on life in the South, and serves as an important primary resource for the study of the American South.

North American Slave Narratives [Documenting the American South, UNC-Chapel Hill] 


This collection includes all the existing autobiographical narratives of fugitive and former slaves published as broadsides, pamphlets, or books in English up to 1920. Also included are many of the biographies of fugitive and former slaves and some significant fictionalized slave narratives published in English before 1920.


The Church in the Southern Black Community

Collects autobiographies, biographies, church documents, sermons, histories, encyclopedias, and other published materials. These texts present a collected history of the way Southern African Americans experienced and transformed Protestant Christianity into the central institution of community life. Coverage begins with white churches' conversion efforts, especially in the post-Revolutionary period, and depicts the tensions and contradictions between the egalitarian potential of evangelical Christianity and the realities of slavery. It focuses, through slave narratives and observations by other African American authors, on how the black community adapted evangelical Christianity, making it a metaphor for freedom, community, and personal survival.

Mississippi Writers Page

A multi-faceted Internet Resource about writers in, from, or otherwise associated with the state of Mississippi.

Also included are relevant World Wide Web links to other information sources on the Internet. Visitors to this site may browse the listings in a number of ways; you may access indexes to the individual articles sorted by authors' last names, by titles of published works, by year, by Mississippi places associated with those authors, and by genre.
